    Amazing views and nice shots!

    Just some remarks (you don't have to agree :) )
    Personally I feel the shots and overall video is too long, it feels a bit dragged out and boring compared to what is a really impressive landscape.
    I think by reducing the length of the shots to about 1/3 (and the total video length as well) you would get a much more interesting video that will remain interesting to watch for the full duration.
    I started skipping bits and pieces after about 30 seconds.

    Very nicely done. I do have some suggestions:

    1) As stated the shots tend to "hang on" too long. I appreciate the beauty you're trying to capture and share but each shot should be a snapshot not a feature. Ideally you want to leave the viewer wanting just a bit more to keep their interest going

    2) Great music choice but take the volume down a notch so that it doesn't over ride the grandeur of the video. I realize every computer has a volume control but if the viewer is thinking about and fooling with that they are missing your video.

    Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing. Gorgeous area you captured.

    Great feedback Allen! Very thorough and well articulated. I'll definitely apply this in future projects.
